Almost Christmas isn't a brilliant film, though it's an entertaining and satisfying one.

A lot of the jokes land and it's overall a cheerful fun movie for the holidays.

It's a nice Christmas movie, and man is it good to see Danny Glover back on the big screen.

I'm a bit of a sucker for ensemble romantic comedies, and "Almost Christmas" had enough rom-com going on to win me over.

What's there is a well-crafted holiday picture, universal in appeal and scope that lights up laughter and maybe earns a few tears.

Almost Christmas follows a series of predictable twists, that doesn't negate its charm.

Aside from the traditional spaghetti set-up of conflicts that will unfurl and be resolved with good cheer around the turkey, David E Talbert's film has a rather moving backstory about the death of the family matriarch the previous year.

Maybe not a Christmas cracker, but it's warming festive fun, nonetheless.

Movies where a large family gathers to celebrate Christmas only have to nail one scene, and Almost Christmas does, more or less.

If the cast is willing, I'm sure other Meyers family reunions will follow, although none is likely to be as sweet as this sugar plum.

If you have family, you'll relate to *this* family.

The movie takes a few calamitous turns at its climax, dangerously approaching broad slapstick and villainizing a character we've come to love. But mainly, it's a fun and boisterous countdown to the big meal.

The effort of decorating and cooking doesn't guarantee that Christmas will ever be as rewarding as it should be. We're related to people whether we like them or not. That may be why even something as programmed as Almost Christmas seems likably authentic.

Almost Christmas delivers the gift-wrapped goods thanks to some downright funny scenes and the blissfully hilarious presence of Mo'nique.
November 12, 2016
Talbert's sweet potato pie makes for a treat, with a enough laughs to keep us going until the exact right moment for some tears.

Almost Christmas doesn't set a new standard for family holiday comedies, but its cast and a handful of outrageously funny moments make it worthwhile for fans of the genre.

Sometimes, amid the holiday excess and overindulgence, you need a comic palate cleanser. Think of this as a cinematic After Eight mint.

While lacking in surprises, it's full of charm, thanks to an ensemble that makes it look like they had a blast making this movie.

I am giving this a mild recommend for those looking for a new flick to get them into the early holiday spirit. (Full Content Review for Parents - Sexual Content, Profanity, etc. - also Available)
